The Cybersecurity Podcast

Cybersecurity is not just computers and digital processes. Whether it's the threat or the response, the most important, and most interesting, part of the story is the people behind the keyboard. That’s why we’re launching The Cybersecurity Podcast, a monthly program featuring key leaders and thinkers in this space. Our half-hour podcast will go beyond the headlines to discuss some of the most pressing issues and newest ideas in cybersecurity.

Cybersecurity pro and undercover CIA officer-turned-Republican Rep. Will Hurd joins New America’s Peter Singer and Passcode’s Sara Sorcher to talk about what it's like to be the rare cybersecurity expert in Congress; why he went to DEF CON this summer; and why he's disappointed the Office of Personnel Management never apologized for allowing his personal information to fall into the hands of hackers. Hurd, a freshman, is chairman of the IT subcommittee on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. 

Next up: Chris Valasek. He made headlines this summer by demonstrating a live hack of a Jeep Cherokee with a Wired reporter in it – work that forced a recall of some 1.4 million Chrysler vehicles. Now a security lead at Uber’s advanced technologies center, Valasek joins the podcast to talk about the line between drawing needed attention to cybersecurity issues and a dangerous stunt; how companies can make themselves available for "free quality assurance" hackers can provide; and security concerns within the Internet of Things. This podcast is sponsored by Arizona State University.
